Baby FAN prefers savoury food to sweet stuff, so have been experimenting with savoury food that is portable and I can prepare ahead of time. While searching the net, found this recipe from allrecipes.com where they use cream cheese as the main ingredients for the muffin. So decided to give it a try. They muffins turn out beautifully and it actually tasted quite good. But....sigh...my baby girl doesn't seems to like the texture of muffins and cakes, so take a bite and spit it out...sigh....As for my boy, he just ate the cream cheese toppings while my husband says he don't like muffins even though it tasted quite nice....sigh...I think I have to give up making muffins as it always ended up in my tummy or the dustbin. In any case, for those of you who loves muffins, do give this a try, the smell was heavnly when I baked it and it actually tasted quite nice, I personally quite like it as a contrast to the normal sweet type.

- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
